5 User Views GVA-suggested Human Machine Interface Video compatibility and selection via middleware. Digital image quality. Remote Weapon System control via middleware. Surveillance Sight control via middleware.

6 Concluding Views Conclusions Def Stan Video interfaces - high quality, low latency. Cost-effective Def Stan implementation. Middleware – mount & video select approach promising .... tool costs, operating system overheads & security to be addressed in Land context. Data Model the major architecture effort .... further work needed. Modular Sensor System flexibility management of complexity. Sustained technical effort is essential. Recommendations Plan for many payload and tailoring possibilities within the Def Stan standard. Lessons learned to be fed into Def Stan update. Continue Data Model development via more formal route. Update procurement strategies to support subsystem upgrade through-life. Initiative of VSI should continue. Unique applied research forum separate from programme delivery. Precise objectives and continuity of funding.
